Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer's Life 1990 2005

Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer's Life 1990 2005
ATLANTA, GEORGIA  •  High Museum of Art  •  Ongoing

The material in the exhibition, and in the accompanying book of the same title, which has been published by Random House, encompasses work Annie Leibovitz (American, b. 1949) made on assignment as a professional photographer as well as personal photographs of her family and close friends, most notably the late American writer Susan Sontag.

Portraits of public figures include the pregnant Demi Moore, Nelson Mandela in Soweto, Jack Nicholson on Mulholland Drive, George W. Bush with members of his Cabinet at the White House, William Burroughs in Kansas, and Agnes Martin in Taos. The assignment work also includes reportage from the siege of Sarajevo in the early 1990s and a rather unfortunate series of landscapes taken in the American West and in the Jordanian desert.

After Atlanta, the show travels to Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Paris and London with additional venues and dates to be announced.
